Market and 5th Streets
Location: San Francisco Westfield Mall, meet in front of the spiral staircase
What: A fast-fashion protest hosted by XR Youth SF Bay. On Black Friday, we must remember that 12.8 million tons of clothing are sent to landfills in the US every year. The fashion industry’s CO2 emissions are projected to increase by more than 60% to nearly 2.8 billion tons per year by 2030.
We will process into the mall. We will then do a die-in. After the die-in, we will continue our action and outreach by hosting a sit-in.
Who: You! Us! Anyone who is concerned about the environment and their carbon footprint.
What to bring: protest signs (if you don’t have them, we have some extra), comfortable clothing. Another option is to wear an outlandish outfit to make fun of fast-fashion.
